Moments of The Day: Jos Buttler, All-Round Bowling Performance Ensures Easy English Victory
- Morgan’s captaincy has been on point this World Cup. In the earlier games, he had used Moeen Ali up front against left handers. Against Australia, Adil Rashid (4-0-19-1) and Chris Woakes (4-0-23-2) were unleashed. At 21-4, the game was done and dusted.
- Bad pitch theory was put to rest when the English openers came to bat. When Jason Roy had departed, England’s score was 66 in 6.2 overs. Buttler finished it with some magnificent straight sixes. An innings worth 71* (35).
Broken Cricket Dream of the Day: Australia in the Middle Muddle
- This game was supposed to be the Ashes battle preview. Since the India-Pakistan match was one sided, a closer battle was expected. However, England brushed Australia aside with 74 balls to spare. The damaged NRR means that all teams are back in contention, even West Indies and Bangladesh, the two teams Australia have to face now.
